I'd like to thank Alan Grassia for sending me this interesting news. Could Palm (makers of the Treo), and Rim (makers of the BlackBerry) be merging? Check this out.
"A few interesting rumors are starting to circulate on a Palm and Research In Motion (RIM) merger this Thursday (06/29/2006). There are a couple of good points here but I think there's a bit more to this.
Looking at this from a pure technology perspective for a moment, this could actually be a great thing. RIM does not have a product as good as the Treo, but Palm does not have server software as good as RIM. Very soon we will see the BlackBerry Connect software released for the Treo in the US which will help bring the Treo into the enterprise, but it's not quite enough. Palm won't have the end-to-end solution, it will require RIM for Palm to break into the enterprise. If Palm can get their hands on RIM server software allowing for push e-mail, calendar, contacts, remote device security and policy auditing, it will create a very powerful solution. Third parties offer this now in the form of GoodLink and whatnot but these solutions are still not as good as what RIM has to offer in their turn-key package."
